    Series Result - Australia 4 - 1 England
    Most Runs (ENG) - Michael Vaughan
    Most Runs (AUS) - Ricky Ponting
    Most Runs (Overall) - Ricky Ponting
    Most Wickets (ENG) - Steve Harmison
    Most Wickets (AUS) - Glenn McGrath
    Most Wickets (Overall) - Steve Harmison
    Compton-Miller Medal Winner (for the overall Man Of The Series) - Ricky Ponting

    Vaughan is the pick of the English batsmen IMO, and Punter will be geared up for a big series. Harmison will probably end up with the most wickets because he will have less competition than McGrath, who I picked because I can't be sure about the other three as selectors stupidly choose to consider players who shouldn't be anywhere near the Tests (i.e. Brett Lee)

    got to love Murali's assessment

    "Australia. Flintoff is out of form, Vaughan is out of form, Trescothick is technically suspect and Thorpe should be playing."

    Straight to the point, thats why he's an honourary Lancastrian

    He's wrong about Flintoff, though.

    Murali knows his cricket, do not question him.

    I don't think Flintoff is out of form? Just because a player isn't scoring runs, doesn't mean they are out of form. Flintoff has looked like making a big score throughout the tour to date, he's just only successfully done it once.

    How are people doing so far? As to my predictions...

    - My series prediction (2-1 AUS) will be looking pretty unlikely if there's a result in this test (particularly if England win it, obviously). I still kinda expect a one-test margin though.
    - Langer is the second highest-scoring Aussie batsman at this point, just behind Clarke.
    - Warne's the highest Aussie wicket-taker, but Lee's challenging.
    - Vaughan just put himself into contention with today's century for England's batting table, but is still behind Pietersen and Tresco.
    - Sadly (for me), Hoggard is languishing a bit behind Harmo and Flintoff so far as the English bowlers are concerned.

    Hmm well at the moment the only ones im close to being right on are the series result and Flintoff for most runs and wickets, sort of. Way off with punter so far tho
